energy system. by the way, we can create jobs doing that. right now our republican friends, when you talk about want to do entilement reform, it's not entitlement reform. let's be clear. it's massive cuts in social security, medicare, veterans programs, medicaid. >> you know their argument is that you can't just raise taxes. you have to, at some point, you have to get your fiscal house in order and that means cuts to some of these entitlement programs. >> no it does not. when you talk about getting your fiscal house in order, that's correct, but our republican friends forget to mention that at 15.8%, revenue compared to gdp, that is the lowest percentage in 60 years. when clinton gave us a balanced budget, revenue was about 20%. we have one out of four corporations, profitable corporations not paying a nickel in taxes in america. the effective corporate tax rate today is the lowest it's been since 1972. of course republicans want to cut social security, medicare, medicaid. but i think it is time for large corporations who are not paying a nickel in taxes to start paying their fair share.

sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. but america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it. >> so the question is, is this just a preview of what's to come? maybe details in the state of the union, or is this just making up for lost time? >> i think it could be a little bit of both. but we saw in that clip a real shot the president taking at republicans. when he's talking there about climate deniers. another very unusual passage in this address. also may be up first. taking a shot at your previous opponent when we talk about social security, medicare, that's not being a nation of takers, throwing in that message, i a real jab not only at mitt romney when he devoted convincingly but also paul ryan, house budget chairman, who he'll be dealing with and had made similar comments. what was interesting here was pushing climate change as the defining issue of the era. hard to see -- >> on the heels of sandy, the heels of last year's draught was one of the worst in our country's history going back to the dust bowl, you'd think there would be wind sailing in the right d
sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it. we cannot cede to other nations the power of jobs and technologies. we must claim its promise. >> strong, clear words from a president considered not green enough by environment lists in his first term. it's true, the president has a lot of work to do but instead of chastising him, maybe it's time for the green movement itself to reimagine what it ought to look like. the modern green movement must be an inclusive one and close the green gab that exists between national and environmental organizations and justice organizations. the environmental problems in inner cities and rural areas ok pied by low income communities of color deserve as much attention as the fracking. at the end of the day, the environmental problem that is happen over there, whether in the mall deese or usa, it will affect us. joining us, the nation magazine. victoria an nbc latino con tr contribut contributor. mike, the executive director of the schoolkill center and peggy executive director of west h
the energy and creativity and passion into projecting his ideas that he did put in the first couple of years into trying to compromise with people who were not having it. i'm very optimistic. >> i think we're part of making the case, not just part of people in the administration, or whatever. but people who believe in progressive action. david, how do we make the case in the time of a $16 trillion debt, and i know we have to get around this, that we could have a capital budget. we could raise money and spend it in a way that would increase the wealth of this country because of infrastructure and allowing us to have the transportation that is equal to that in europe today, western europe and in asia. can we make that case, or are we stuck with this big debt, therefore all we talk about is retrenchment? >> well, you have to make the case that in this hyper competitive global economy that we now live in, we can't afford to let hurry infrastructure either go to waste or not keep up with what is happening in other countries. he made that argument today, the president, in terms of sustainable ener
of raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms. the path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult, but america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it. >> well, rush limbaugh challenged him today because people who are listening to rush are driving cars and using up fossil fuel and they're not driving smart cars or priuses. no, they're driving big gas burners, but the fact is there's still that sort of know-nothingism, if you will, that -- i'm trying to think of the great word. you don't believe in anything. luddites. is this going to change things? >> maybe not, but it was sort of symbolic of the whole address which is that it's time to stop having sort of side debates over issues we no longer can deny. >> how about balanced argument? there's really -- in other words, some things have been decided by science. >> correct. and, you know, we spent a good two years now talking about the huge threat that our debt is when arguably the warming of the planet, which could be irreversible, is a much larger threat than our national debt. what obam

's about education, about research and development, it's about controlling our energy future. all of these are part of the equation. and we can't just do one piece of it, and we can't let that piece prevent us or become a smoke screen for not acting on the others. so that is the challenge. how do you put that puzzle together, move forward in a balanced way, so we're funding those kinds of priorities that we need to grow? >> it's interesting, doris, as you look at the historical sweep as well. here is a very toxic atmosphere in washington. a carryover of, you know, difficult debates. and the president who's popular, has a unified party, but also seems reluctant to go out on a limb on some big areas where he thinks he's not going to get much cooperation from republicans. >> i'm not sure that's true. i think gun control. he came out with sweeping proposals. i mean, that's certainly out on a limb. you're not going to get a lot of support perhaps from republicans. but his idea, i think, is that if you educate the country -- you know, when he talked to you, he mentioned lincoln's quote.
that energy in a very constructive way to support incumbents that we have, particularly in those tough districts or states that we can barely hold on to, like a georgia. i mean, that seat could come in play, depending who that nominee is. and the party has to give that some great consideration. >> that substantive critique from you and the different strands of substantive critique about what happened in 2012 and what is wrong inside the party and the structure of the party makes it so remarkable to me that reince priebus was unopposed. i find it astonishing. >> yeah, me too. >> michael steele, msnbc analyst, former chairman of the party, thank you for your time tonight. it's great to see you back. >> all right, rachel. >>> president obama has made his choice to run the s.e.c. the agency that is supposed to police wall street. there are very few people, like maybe zero people who know more about the nominee or the job of the nominee than our special guest tonight, former new york governor and attorney general elliott spitser is here. yes! stay tuned. impact life expectancy in the u.s.,

you think a role -- nuclear energy is going to play in all of this? >> well, we're getting 20% of our electricity from nuclear power and stable for a listening time. the big story in the electricity generation is in wind. wind is now -- came from nowhere to it's now 4% of the electricity in this country. we're getting from wind power and the department of energy says we can grow that to 20% which would be on par with nuclear power in just 15 years if we stay the course and important to continue to invest in the fur which you are that way. >> bob, i mean, you are talking about the potential progress here in a second term and one of the first decision that is president obama faces right now is the keystone pipeline. and i think there's possible consequences for emissions from approving that. i think the expectation is to be approved. when's the estimate of the epa? something like over a billion tons of co2 emissions over 50 years could be produced by this pipeline. are you concerned whatever, a lot of good you are seeing here in the second term offset by approving the keystone? >> the p

-year career in international security and arms control and energy security, but this gun control thing is a really tough issue, and it's tough because it's emotional. what the nra has done is to make it even more emotional by bringing in ancillary arguments about the elite and how well-protected they are, suggesting everyone else is not. i felt i had to sort of depart from my normal activities and write something about this, because first of all, presidential children and grandchildren who have protection are in a very different category than ordinary kids, regrettably. they are an extension of the president himself and are targets. so, to suggest that the population as a whole is somehow similar to one of the obama children just isn't fair or right. >> you wrote in this "washington post" op-ed, which caught my eye, how lucky is it to grow up with a loss of privacy and freedom along with the psychological effects of a child shadowed by armed body guards. having secret service protection is part of the sacrifice presidential families make in the name of public service. those who have ha

a nation that is demanding action to create millions of jobs to transform our energy system, to come up with a fair tax proposal so the wealthy and large corporations start paying their fair share. we are not going to be able to do those things and many other things, the things, in fact, that mitch mcconnell and his billionaire friends are worried about, we are not going to be able to do that if we need 60 votes. no, i think what ended up happening is we could only get to the best of my knowledge 47, 48 votes. that was the reality. there were seven or so democrats who chose not to go along with what we call the talking filibuster, which would have meant 51 votes. and that's the story. >> it looks to me like we're reaching the point where the american public is growing more aware of filibuster reform that relates to substantive issues. and this is not a good deal. and it's going to be very interesting to see how this plays out. next week the president is going to be going to nevada to talk about immigration reform. i mean, do you think that we can get immigration reform in this country?
